I have several concerns about my care at the Royal Sussex Gastroenterology dept. The staff who care for me don't seem to listen or take my problems seriously. I am always seen by junior doctors and never the same person on two occasions.
I have to remain on steroids to control symptoms, even when there is more effective treatment available. It seems that anti-TNF treatment is too expensive. The 12-week follow-up appointments that I make are regularly postponed by between 1-3 months at a time. The doctors I see at Royal Sussex are often distracted and unfocused.
